Industrial Manufacturers of Air Dryers and PSA Air Separators Rely on Assured Automation’s Compact Automated Valves
Equipment used to dry compressed air or extract nitrogen and oxygen are built with components that must meet specific, demanding requirements. For reliable performance, flexibility, availability and endurance, manufacturers require valves which can deliver a high cycle life with minimal space requirements. To meet these stringent requirements, leading manufacturers rely on Assured Automation’s compact automated valves, angle body valves and high performance butterfly valves.
Common solenoid valves, ball valves and resilient seat butterfly valves cannot meet the high cycle demand of air dryers or air separators. These systems require high-speed, durable and reliable valves.
Assured Automation’s Ares Angle Seat, VAX, VA and 26 Series ball valves are preferred for smaller lines sizes offering high cycle-life, durability and reliability, and compact assembly. High performance butterfly valves are preferred for line sizes 3” and larger. Both valve designs will meet the high cycle demands of air dryers and air separation equipment.
Ares & Zeus Series Angle Seat Valves
The Angle Seat Valve is a 2/2-way pneumatically actuated piston valve for liquids, gases, steam and some aggressive fluids (vacuum services also.) The superior design of the piston is unique to the market, enabling the plug to retract farther from the flow path, ensuring the highest flow capacity. The dual packing design, and a large diameter self aligning stem insures the highest cycle life.
VA Compact Automated Valves
The VA Series combines a pneumatic actuator and fast on-off control valve into one body, eliminating packing glands, actuators and mounting kits. There are no exposed moving parts, eliminating pinch points and increasing operator safety. Since the actuator is part of the valve, costs are greatly reduced when compared to standard actuated valves. Operating life has been tested to well over 1,000,000 cycles, due to the balanced design which reduces friction and wear.
VAX High Pressure Coaxial Valve
VAX Series coaxial valves have been proven in the control of vacuum and gaseous, liquid, gelatinous and highly viscous media. The compact design, fast cycle speed and high duty cycles (1 Million +) make them ideal for OEM equipment manufacturers.
26 Series Stainless Steel Ball Valves
The 26 Series is a two piece full port ball valve constructed of 316 stainless steel, available with threaded NPT ends in 1/4″ to 3″ line sizes. The 26 Series can be equipped with a manual handle or with pneumatic or electric actuators.
High Performance Butterfly Valves
The HPW/HPL is a high performance soft seated, metal seated, fire safe butterfly valve. Body material is either Carbon steel or 316 Stainless Steel. Connections are either wafer style (HPW) or lug style (HPL) and are either 150 or 300 lb. ANSI rated. It can be equipped with a manual handle or with pneumatic or electric actuators
